What motivates me – I’ve always been a very active person and yoga teaches you to connect your body, breath and mind.
My Yoga style – Meditation, finding joy and steadiness in every pose.
Lee maintains that movement practice is a pathway into the subconscious, because our movements are a reflection of our mind. This stems from the idea that if we are able to observe our movements, we will start observing our thoughts. Only once these patterns are acknowledged, can we use our practice to change them into new and healthy patterns.
If you are seeking a challenge, a change, or a different perspective, join Lee for a class which aims to open the body and mind. Discover new patterns and seek to know what you don’t know.
In 2015 Sajiv completed a Vinyasa yoga teacher training facilitated by Living Yoga and immediately took the opportunity to teach.
He draws inspiration from ancient yogic texts, dance, music and life in general to teach classes that require not only strength and focus, but also bring a very playful element to your practise. His classes are mentally and physically uplifting and challenging as he loves doing backbends, arm balances and being upside down in inversions to look at things from a different perspective.
What motivates me – Deepening the understanding of oneself by connecting mind and body to create harmony.
My Yoga style – I believe in creating harmony in all aspects of our lives. I try create balance in my classes, flowing through both easy and challenging poses creating a space for you to challenge yourself and then having a space to relax and be at ease. Exploring our mind and body expect a little meditation and breath control in the mix.
What motivates me – I like to be comfortable and able to do what I want to without being in pain. This means being in touch with and moving your body. After all, we have only one to get us through our lifetime!
My Yoga style – I focus a lot on breathing and technique – it’s not about what you do, but how you do it. I also like to play and have fun with the body, so we use props, work with partners, explore what our bodies can do and how they move.
What motivates me – My love for teaching and the hope of waking up
My yoga style – I’ve always tried to emphasise getting clear on the basics to create a strong foundation. This means focusing on the underlying principles of yoga so that people can understand the reasons behind the practice. My classes are workshop based with a lot of detail in the instruction. I believe if you get the basics right, the fancy stuff will sort itself out. And meditation: don’t forget the meditation part 🙂
After teaching for 9 years I can say with certainty that aspects of this practice and the way one guides people through it, change; all – the – time!
One of the most profound things that I have learnt is to stop straining and pushing and to instead practise EASE. Finding ways in your yoga practice to move and breathe and feel what is really going on while you are practising … and then understanding and experiencing what it means to move with ease IN YOUR OWN BODY. This inevitably will flow over into the rest of your life.
So you come to a class, and together we’ll figure out what works for you, and where you can let go a bit … or a whole lot!
It’s a symbioses, where we all benefit from practising ease.
Her classes focus on moving with awareness so as to improve posture, spine flexibility and muscle strength.
Working towards a mind-body connection brings inner balance and helps quieten the mind.
A priceless gift.
These classes are aimed at counteracting our daily habits and often less ideal climbing postures and form, to make us strong, smart and injury free climbers.
